4 Ways to teach your kids to show kindness 1. Educate yourself first. Then the child.
Children are more likely to copy the behavior of adults than to listen to their verbal advice. Therefore, first, it is important that we - adults - independently set an example for our child to be kind. Don't forget to be grateful to your children for their help, talk to them when they’re sad or hurt, care about them and others, help your relatives and strangers, use polite words like "please" and "sorry" etc.
2. Be kind to yourself.
To be kind to the world, it is important to be kind to yourself. You need to fill yourself with resources to be able to share them later. Tell the children about self-love - to support themselves as a close friend, not to criticize, respect, appreciate.
3. Explain that kindness is not easy.
It is often difficult to be kind. It can be challenging for children to share their favorite toy or give up a favorite cookie and treat a friend instead. Our task as adults is to say that kindness is really an effort. However, it makes us stronger.
